Overview

St George Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Beachfront 4 Bedroom, 4 Bath - Gulf Views Galore!

A Turtle's Dream is as close to the Gulf of Mexico's water’s edge as you can get! Any closer and you'll get wet. The large beach facing deck has covered and uncovered areas, with ample furnishings for all, to either enjoy your morning cup of coffee watching the sun rise over the Gulf, read a book, sunbathe, or watch the dolphins swim. The white sandy beaches of St. George Island are just steps away. When you can manage to steal your gaze away from the stunning view of the Gulf, gather inside this warm and inviting home featuring elegant woodwork throughout, glowing heart pine floors, and cypress tongue and groove walls. The great room with lovely beamed ceilings and built in bookshelves around a gas fireplace is the central gathering place for meals and catching up with family and friends. The well appointed kitchen has everything you could possibly need to prepare the day's catch or your family's favorite recipes. New stainless steel appliances, a stand alone ice maker and lots of extras make this kitchen a joy to be in. An extra refrigerator is also provided in the storage room under the house. Enjoy family tournaments at the pool table alongside a wall of glass doors showing off the amazing Gulf views. Or retreat to the quiet respite of one of four bedrooms. Two bedrooms with king size beds face the beach with sliding glass doors to the deck and stunning Gulf views, as well as private baths with double vanities. The third bedroom also has a king size bed and a private bath, and the fourth bathroom is convenient for both the fourth bedroom featuring a triple bunk bed, and the great room. All beds invite you for a restful night's sleep or lazy afternoon nap with new Simmons Beautyrest mattresses. A pack-n-play is available to make things a little easier for parents.

Downstairs under the house is a large concrete parking pad with fish cleaning sink, picnic table and outdoor shower with hot and cold water.

Flat screen televisions and blu-ray players are in each bedroom and in the living room.

Perfectly Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
This is THE place! The ONLY place! Stop looking and book it now. We stayed here for Thanksgiving week and it exceeded our expectations in every way. The photos do not come close to relaying the wonderful peace you feel as you enter into this oasis. When I looked at the pictures on line I was worried that it may be a bit cramped with the pool table behind the couch but the spacious living area has plenty of room. The beach was also closer than it looked in the pictures.
After a 19 hour drive the luscious linens and towels provided lulled us in to comfort immediately. With the bedrooms in the 4 corners of the house everyone had plently of privacy as well as their own bathroom and tv (that didn't get used much). All of which is important with teenagers as travel companions!
The large open kitchen has everything you could possibly need, even a food processor, popcorn popper, waffle maker, any size or type of knife you would want, even bottle or can huggies and I could go on...With plenty of dishes, silverware and glasses there was no problem entertaining our extended family who were also staying on the island. This house has been stocked down to the smallest of details which translates to no worries and more relaxing.
On the first three days of our week the weather was stormy with tornado warnings but it did not even phase us. The living area's entire oceanside wall is glass and watching the magnificent cloud formations and whipping rain and surf was fantastic. We never felt like we were "stuck" inside due to the views and openness of the house.
Although the cable box decided it was time to retire while we were there, it was no problem. Carla did not skip a beat towards fixing the issue with grace and charm. When the cable company did not offer an optimum solution she used her local network to have everything fixed in time for the football game. I even learned a very empowering quote while watching her weave her magic, "Now [sir], we are just going to have to do better than that".
Make sure you have a meal at the Beach Pit while you are there. I can vouch for the evening crew that the service and food were incredible. I'm just sorry I never made it for breakfast.
Peace and calm are waiting for you at A Turtle's Dream. Don't hesitate-I have never been more pleased with a travel stay than I was here. Pack light and enjoy the ride. Your haven awaits.

Owner's Response: Well JJ, I may just have to copy and paste your review and make it our new description of A Turtle's Dream! It was fun to meet you and your kids, and to work thru the cable woes with you. Living in a small town definitely has it perks when you need to get something done. Thank you so much for choosing A Turtle's Dream. We hope to see you all back soon!

The Best House on SGI

  • 5 of 5
I have been vacationing on the Island since I was a small child and A Turtle's Dream is by far the nicest house that we have ever found. The beds were great! Everything was new and above the normal rental amenities. The kitchen was fully stocked and we cooked fresh seafood many meals instead of going out. The provided beach chairs had individual cooler pouches on the back so we were set for many hours at the beach without even having to go in for snacks for the kids. Beach towels, Boogie boards and sand toys were provided too. Seriously, all we packed were clothes and some food items. Easiest packing ever. Also, my husband owns his own business and the Wifi was so great! We could work from the house but his phone even picked up sitting with our feet in the water. Now there is no excuse not to go on vacation. Loved our week at A Turtle's Dream.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for you taking the time to write your review. It is pretty cool to sit at the water's edge and work (for those of us who have to). Makes a working vacation so much more of a vacation! We are so happy your family enjoyed your time together at A Turtles' Dream. We look forward to having you back!

Totally relaxing get away

  • 5 of 5
This was an excellent property for a vacation. The house was beautiful and very clean. All the appliances were up dated and especially loved the ice maker. There was a separate fridge and freezer in the storage room. The mattresses were very comfortable which is hard to find in a rental property. Our agent was very helpful and answered everything we needed. More than enough room for a large family or even 2 families. Nice location on the island for easy excess to everything but still private. Will definitely be back to "A Turtles Dream"

The Best Beach Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5
Wow, was what was exclaimed by all family members as they walked thru the house. The view of the ocean was incredible. We have never stayed in a house so well appointed with what we needed, including a welcome basket! Carla gets 10 stars for being the most accommodating and friendliest VRBO'er. The house was very clean, great beds and linens, wonderful porch furniture, and very attractively decorated. We can't wait to come back!

A Great Stay

  • 4 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at A Turtle's Dream. The house was clean and well maintained. The kitchen was well-stocked. The house was well-located on the island - about a mile from restaurants and shops. We really enjoyed the open floor plan and the pool table! We also liked that a portion of the deck was covered so we could enjoy it in the heat of the day and when it rained. The owner was responsive to all of our questions. We were pleased to find beach chairs and sand toys in the storage area. In all, it was a great place to stay!

Best house we've ever stayed in!

Best house we've ever stayed in!

We have used VRBO on several occasions in different areas of the country. This was by far the nicest, most well-equipped house we have rented. The house was very clean and had more pots and pans than a small restaurant. The washer and dryer are full-sized which is so important at the beach. We loved the layout of the house. We had a great time relaxing with a billiards tournament every evening after dinner. The storage room and extra refrigerator and freezer downstairs was a huge help. Although every room had a TV, I don't think we ever turned one on. Super vacation!
